Happy Birthday card by Amy Prior

Hi there Colour Blast fans! Amy Prior back with you all again today, this time sharing a quick card tutorial using the gorgeous new Colour Shimmer Cubes!

To create this fun background, I have added various layers of roughly painted flowers using the following Colour Shimmer Cubes colours: Sunshine, Tangareen Dream, Rose Petal, Blush, Punch, Lipstick, Fire Engine, Lovely Lilac, Royalty, Just Blue, Deep Water, Singin the Blues, Envy, and Apple of my Eye

The watercolour flowers were painted onto some trimmed watercolour paper gradually by using one colour at a time. 

Once the base colours were down, I could come back with other colours to create depth such as oranges over the yellow, and reds over pinks, etc.

When the watercolour paper was completely dry, I have adhered a white die cut Happy Birthday sign over the top  before adhering the whole piece onto a white 6x4 card.

To help the white pop more, I have traced around the edges of the die cut and the entire painted area with a black sharpie.

Checkout that gorgeous shimmer!

Thanks so much for stopping by and until next time, happy scrapping!
